i have a ’sweet’ tooth ( the one that is not fully decayed yet )
Sugar is ‘the enemy’ – or at least ‘refined’ ( isn’t that such a ’sweet’ sounding word – so ‘refined’??) sugars are.
Sugars are everywhere – often in disguise ( lactose, fructose, glucose as well as the ‘evil’ sucrose)
Learning to detect and overcome the more refined ones is an essential part of having a ‘healthy’ diet.
Most of us learn that too late from our parents – ‘get em while they are young’. It is the food corporations (like Coca Cola and McDonalds) ‘motto’ and it should also be ours!
Once they (we) become addicted to – or simply ‘used to’ – the taste ‘fix’ of pure refined sucrose it is so hard ‘going back’.
It’s like an alcoholic – they can live perfectly well for weeks, years without a drink and then one little ‘taste’ and WHAM! – back off the wagon – it never leaves us alone.
I fool myself i can get by on just a ‘little’ because i have strong will-power– a little chocolate, a little cordial, a little slice of pie now and then – a cake here one day, a danish here the next but one, but they ALL ADD UP
Hi – My name’s love and i’m a sugarholic…
